I had not had my menu 2 minutes before a waiter appeared abruptly asking for my order . Another 10 minutes and my so called... read more

The location of Monastrell is great, very central (attached to Hospes Amerigo hotel.) The food was excellent as you would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant, and very reasonably priced for one. We ate early (7 pm) with our baby (who sat in his pram) and the staff couldn't have been lovelier. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Just a super restaurant run by a very talented business woman Maria Jose San Roman. The bar area is great, with the hardest working and politest staff you have ever seen. The

This restaurant is located in a pretty courtyard (if you chose to sit outside) in the heart of the historic district of Alicante. The serving staff were attentive and unobtrusive. The food was just spectacular. My husband and I enjoyed every course of the taster menu which had clearly been put together with a lot of thought and creativity. At... More

I had dinner here with my GF. The restaurant is modern with a cosy feel. The lights were a bit dimmed, which gave it a romantic atmosphere. I really liked the way it was decorated. For a michelin star restaurant the prices are very reasonable compared to other michelin star restaurants. Yes, it is expensive compared to other restaurants in... More

My wife and I sampled the taster menu; had an evening meal and also lunch at this restaurant that is part of the hotel in which we stayed. Each meal was memorable. The very talented chef, Maria Jose San Roman, has created a range of dishes that are simply divine. The superb standard of cooking, delightful presentation and wonderful flavours... More

Had the testing menu which was superb. We didn't take the wine choice and the bottle of Alicante red we had didn't quite match the rest of the meal but it was a memorable experience.
